From fjords and mountains to old mines, a via ferrata, and festivals – Kvinesdal offers lush nature, cultural history, and a little piece of America.

Located between Kristiansand in Southern Norway and Stavanger in Fjord Norway, Kvinesdal is situated by the Fedafjord and is surrounded by mountains. Here, you can hike, fish, and relax by the sea. The Kvina river is a popular place for salmon fishing.

In addition to the beautiful nature, you can get a taste of American culture here as well. Many residents emigrated in the 1800s and brought some of that culture with them when they returned, which is celebrated at the annual American emigration festival.

The region is also known for the Summer Conference at Sarons dal, the historic town Feda and Utsikten Hotell Kvinesdal, which offers panoramic views of the valley. In the far north lies Knaben, an old mining town that was occupied by German forces during World War II.

As temperatures drop, the region turns into a winter wonderland, and you can challenge yourself in the downhill slopes or well-groomed cross-country tracks at Knaben ski resort.
